The Bouloum Lounge Chair by Olivier Mourgue surpasses the conventional, with its distinctive form resembling a friendly, embracing figure. The chair's ergonomic design and plush upholstery not only offers unexpected comfort but evokes a sense of irony and humor. It serves as an ultimate marriage of functional design and art.

This chair design was deeply personal to Mourgue. He conceived of it based on the silhouette of his dear childhood best friend, and named it after his nickname: "Bouloum."

Olivier Mourgue was a visionary French designer known for his iconic Mid-Century Modern creations, with a notable emphasis on innovative forms, ergonomic comfort, and a touch of whimsy.

The Bouloum Lounge Chair is part of the permanent collection at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
